Chasing the glory of forever

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust.

Born of the soil,
Child of the Earth.
Living a life for all it's worth.
Learning to walk,
Before you can run,
Chasing your dreams in the noonday sun.

To the stars above,
And down below,
A roaming gaze, to and fro.
Of wealthy treasure,
And endless pleasure,
Chasing sweet nothings in infinite measure.

Until the end,
When time has come,
Burning embers in the setting sun.
Dying in vain,
Misery and pain,
Chasing the glory of forever, again.

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust.

Found this picture on, on a web page about past lives. Strangely enough, it seemed to evoke a sense of sand and soil, and birth and death, and I was kind of thinking these kinds of thoughts, so it seemed terribly apt. A potential Islamic influence to this picture maybe? If so, way to work it into the overall image.
